Transcript May 1974 BROADSIDE Page 5 REPRODUCTION (continued) (5) A married man who wants sterilization and feels that his wife's consent should not be a determining factor. (6) A man or woman wanting sterilization who feel that an unnecessary number of people are involved in the counseling and consultation to make this decision. (7) Welfare recipients for whom sterilization and abortion are made difficult to obtain or unobtainable, or who feel that they are subjected to more than the usual red tape and restrictions. Abortion through the first trimester, according to law, is a matter to be decided between an adult woman and her doctor; sterilization should certainly be an adult individual's private and sole decision. Any judgmental (punishing?) restrictions in these areas are degrading and repugnant. If you or anyone you know are considering abortion and/or sterilization under any of the above conditions, and if you feel that you are capable of making these decisions privately, please contact me at 664-4152 (home), 224-5704 (work) , or 524-5743 (Women's Center) - or call Toan Glantz at A.C.L.U. , 524-5925. We would like you to contact us before or at the very beginning of your efforts to secure abortion or sterilization. Nancy Kuykendall SEXUALITY AND LESBIANISM: The American Psychiatric Association has reaffirmed its previous vote which calls for the deletion of the term "homosexuality" from the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders. The APA will hold its annual meeting in Detroit, May 6-10. Houston NOW will be sending a letter to the APA urging that organization to call for civil rights legislation to end discrimination, based on sexual preference, in areas such as housing, employment, credit, finance, child custody, and public accommodation. The Sexuality and Lesbianism Task Force is in the planning stages for the NOW National Conference and has agreed to organize and operate a hospitality room for the Conference as a NOW fundraiser. We are planning to give away beer, and to sell sandwiches, soft drinks, coffee, etc. to conference members. We need ideas and help in our planning. Anyone with skill in soliciting donations of food, beer, etc. , or in organizing such a project, is asked to contact the Task Force. We desperately need women who will be willing to work at least a one-hour shift in the hospitality room. Anyone able to help with shiftwork is asked to call Linda Lovell at 622-5365 or sign up on the roster at the Women's Center. We are also working to distribute the HCWPC's candidate screening information to Houston's gay community. We welcome all input on how best to distribute this info. The next meeting of our Task Force will be Thursday, May 9, at 7:30 PM at the Women's Center. Our major concern at this meeting will be the National Conference. Linda Lovell
